Which organic chem to take?

I was reading a thread, which was about taking organic chem or biochem online, and I was wondering more about this. I plan to pursue anesthesia school in the future, and I am going to be taking organic chem next year. I can take it either at my community college which is 5 credit hours w/ a lab, at the 4 year school either with or without a lab, or online (of course with no lab). I would rather not have a lab, because I do not enjoy chemistry labs, but which would be the best for my transcipts if I plan to eventually apply to anesthesia school? Thanks!

My organic chem is a required last-minute cram before CRNA school so don't take the advice of that thread. I would take a lab, because some schools may want it and it looks good in any case. Sometimes it helps further your knowledge, too. I originally took chem and org chem at the community college rather than the university because it speeded up my BSN. It was fine, and I've been accepted, but the university class probably looks better. It seems like CRNA school is getting more competitive by the day, so you want to stand out from day one.

I would find out what the school's guidance (where you want to apply) is before you take the class. I had my biochem from nursing school and that was all I needed and I did fine (graduated and everything....hehe)

I'm in my 2nd semester of NA program. My advice is to take the organic chem w/out the lab from the 4 year university. If the 4 yr university offers the online course, it might be okay since the it most likely will not state "online" on your transcript. You won't need the lab cuz there's no chem lab in anesthesia programs (at least not in mine or any others that i know of). An A from a community college probably doesn't look as good as a "B" from a 4 yr university since many CC courses are a little "watered down". JMHO..good luck.
